Here is a handy little party trick to make a cool pumpkin keg for your next Halloween party. Pretty simple and will add a nice amount of pumpkin flavor to your brew. Don’t want beer? Try a cocktail mixture and experiment. Just be sure to send us your winners.
What you need:
- Black marker or pencil
- Carving tools (knife)
Quick and Easy instructions:
- Gut your pumpkin: You’ve carved a pumpkin before, time to clean out all that gunk in the inside to make room for your beer. Start by cutting a ring around the top of the pumpkin with your blade angled so that the top will not fall through. Then scoop out all that gunk and get all the seeds out. You can leave some pulp in for flavor.
- Spigot Hole: Place the end of your spigot to the pumpkin and outline the tube. Next carve out the hole. Error on the side of the hole being too small, better to have to force your spigot in than make it too big and having your pumpkin leak. Once you have the hole, unscrew the washer and ends, stick it in, and screw in the washer ends on the inside of the pumpkin to make a nice seal.
- Add Beer and Serve: Pick a good spot with enough room to allow all your guest to crowd around and get some pumpkin beer.
